29th March 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Microsoft is launching the Sustainable Growth Programme supported by Tech Nation with the mission to help impact led businesses accelerate their purpose, product and profits.

More about the workshop

Impact. Big word. With a big meaning. Especially if you’re an impact-driven business.

Are you telling your business impact story in the best possible way?

A way that’s clear, concise and compelling. A way that doesn’t just tick off the facts and stats but also builds an emotional connection with your audience and helps you win over your customers, colleagues and investors.

Anya will get you thinking differently about how to talk and write about your impact. The workshop will be interactive, practical and fun. With plenty of tools and techniques to take away and start putting into practice straight away.
